Information technology consultants advise on, plan, design and install information technology systems for their clients.
IT consultants, also known as technology consultants, are contracted to work with industrial and commercial clients who are seeking help and advice about business and IT problems.
A typical project involves
- consulting staff from different parts of a client’s organization
- analyzing an organization’s data
- determining information system requirements and defining project objectives
- making recommendations, such as suggesting appropriate hardware, software and systems
- designing, installing and trialling new systems and software, and fixing any issues that arise
- compiling and presenting information
- writing reports and documentation
- repairing computer problems and removing viruses
- training users
- responding to feedback.
A flexible attitude to working patterns is helpful as travel and periods of working away from home are to be expected.
Technology consulting: graduate area of work
Technology consulting is about understanding what clients want to achieve for their business and advising on how they can use their IT to deliver those business outcomes. Businesses in all sectors use technology consultancies and they tend to do so for a couple of reasons: either they’ve seen a new piece of technology that they want to use or they are facing a business challenge.
For example, it might be that a client has good systems and tools but what they really want is to make their customer journey more efficient and enjoyable. Or a client might have recently acquired another business and wants to understand the most effective way of bringing together all their different legacy systems and introduce standard ways of working.
What you need to know about technology consulting...
Students should be passionately involved in keeping on top of the latest technology trends. Technology consultancies need to keep up to date with technology and they must also continually evolve their consulting tools. For example, some of our clients want to improve the way they collaborate to get better and quicker solutions, and they look to us to understand how they could do this. We would recommend they use different collaboration tools like Yammer, Slack or SAP Jam to improve their collaborative experience. We would also look at the behaviours we would need to change throughout the business to drive adoption of those new solutions.
We also work with our clients on ‘agile’ programmes. Agile is about fixing problems through a series of ‘sprint cycles’ rather than tacking a big problem all in one go. This means we can be a lot more adaptable in the way we design a solution, tweaking it as we go, rather than trying to come up with the end product straight away.
We often ask graduates in the selection process: ‘Are you prepared to travel?’. Your client base could be all over the country and you will often be working away from home for most of the week.
